  • Should prisoners have the right to vote

    I believe prisoners should have the right to vote because they are humans, like us and have been downgraded and have had a human right taken away from them. So when they are sent to prison, the feel like they are lower than other people and that the government doesn't care about them any more. Therefore by taking away their right to vote, inmates have a bad reflection and feel of the government and leaders.

  • Just because they broke the law

    Doesn't mean they have to but cut off from the world all people should be allowed to vote why should they not be those people could be behind bars for nothing because they did not have a fair trial and they could behind for something they dident do so yes they should can vote

  • Bad for the world

  • All prisoners should have the right and chance to vote.

    Though these people may have committed a crime, being imprisoned doesn't change the fact that they, too, are affected by the results of elections. Some may also argue that they are incompetent of voting because they have proven themselves to be untrustworthy and irresponsible and they compare them to children, non-citizens, and mentally incompetents. This is not always the case for prisoners. I believe that if they feel the need to vote then they still have a sense of duty to their country in which they are still citizens of to vote.

  • Prisoners have kicked their right to vote away the moment they committed the crime.

    People say criminals too have the right to vote since they're human. But I think that they already gave up their rights as a human being when they committed the crime. If you wanted to be treated like a full citizen, then you shouldn't have committed the things that bring harm to other people. They already proved that they aren't the best decision makers. Why should we give them the right as important as choosing a domestic matter? Pay for your sins, and when your punishment is over, then you can vote.

  • No longer part of society

    Prisoners have committed offences against society and therefore as a punishment have been isolated from it. The vote is a privilege but is also a right as it's the basis of a functioning democracy so therefore, if prisoners are deemed to no longer be part of society then they should no longer receive the privilege as it is part of the punishment.

  • Prisoners are not full Citizens

    Citizens in America are what keep America running, and as a result are expected to obey rules. If you are stupid enough or crazy enough to break rules that land you a prison sentence (Murder, Theft, Corruption, etc.) then you don't deserve the full rights of a Citizen because you can't act like a Citizen. Since you put yourself at the mercy of the State by getting in prison, any right that the State wishes to revoke (Other than the 3 fundamental rights of Life, Liberty, and Pursuit of Happines) can be revoked and is justified.

  • They are criminals

    Criminals are already seen as untrustworthy and dangerous, otherwise they wouldn't be in prison in the first place. If you want to vote don't do something stupid enough to land you in prison, if you're in prison its because of your actions or actions taken against you. All citizens are allowed the 3 fundamental rights by our constitution (Life, Liberty, Pursuit of Happiness) , this includes prisoners. Any right other than that can be revoked because you're in prison and if that includes the right to vote then it is justified.

  • Of course not

    Why would you let somebody who has done a horrible crime have their civil rights back? If it was me who has committed a crime that was terrible then i would not want my rights back. If it was a small crime then maybe the people could eventually get their rights back.

  • Imagine what they will do or even vote for.....

    If they get to vote who knows who they ' ll vote for . Anyways they will make this place even worse than it is now , but indeed they will MAYBE ! Be some 3 people that will vote for a good purpose / reason and then lets see if this place becomes the same as hell

  • Not a chance

    Why should we have convicts making serious decisions about our country and our future. If they were responsible human beings they wouldn't have committed the crime in the first case. At the end of the day I think it all depends on the crime they committed, for example if you killed someone or raped someone that's serious and they don't deserve the right to vote because they took away someone's right to feel safe and the right to life. If it was a petty crime like trespassing or minor shoplifting they should be considered to be able to have their say.

  • No Way! Not Happening

    Prisoners decided to break the laws and hurt and damage our communities. Why would we trust them enough to make life changing decisions for our country? We should trust criminals who chose to make bad choices. That the prisoners will probably make again. They will make this country go down in flames.
